|Exploring New Institutional and Governance Models for Integrated Mobility (GA)||OCT 2017||Rich Weaver/Zach Smith |
Public transportation agencies across the country are leveraging improvements in transportation technology and redefining how their agencies manage mobility. The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) is working to ensure that these new mobility services are accessible to all riders and connect them to essential services that include: employment, healthcare, education, and recreation. To support these efforts, The National Center for Mobility Management (NCMM) hosted a peer exchange with transit systems to develop scenarios for governance and institutional models for these integrated mobility concepts. These peer exchanges are intended to be a forum for transit agencies to look at how different mobility management scenarios could evolve, identify opportunities to develop and implement concepts such as Mobility as a Service (MaaS), and to build a framework of strategies and scenarios to guide transit agencies within this new mobility ecosystem. Minutes from the Peer Exchange are available here.

Over 125 regional transportation mobility partners attended the event to engage in a conversation about mobility trends and the current state of practice, local projects underway in Denver, and RTD’s plans to lead a regional initiative to determine how public transportation will integrate with Denver’s changing mobility landscape.
